In Emmerdale, Paddy Kirk (Dominic Brunt) and Chas Dingle’s breakup has been terrible and devastating for both of them, but obviously more so for Paddy.
It came as a major shock to Paddy to learn that Chas had been having an affair with Al Chapman (Michael Wildman) and had plans to leave Paddy to be with him while taking their daughter Eve (Bella James) with her.
Since his initial outraged response to the news, he has grown more reclusive and distant. He was recently accused of being totally self-absorbed by Vinny (Bradley Johnson), who noted that even a chat about Liv (Isobel Steele) quickly led back to Paddy’s grief over Chas.
Given all of this, Paddy’s father Bear (Joshua Richards) makes the decision to
Soon after, Paddy is injured once more when he witnesses Chas making out with the drayman. Chas reminds him that he made the decision to continue living at the Woolpack and that he has no authority to control how she acts.
Mandy (Lisa Riley), who will always have Paddy’s best interests in mind, is worried about how upset he’s been lately. Even though he tries to hide from her, Mandy won’t let him, and soon Paddy has to tell her that he’s lost.
She soothes him with an embrace, and once they are back at the Woolpack, they crack open a bottle of wine. There is a charged moment between them as they converse and recall their common past. Tina Turner then enters the picture, according to Lisa Riley:
‘Then their song, Tina Turner’s What’s Love Got To Do With It, starts playing, and Mandy starts fighting nonstop.
Mandy is saying, “No,” as they are locking eyes, she revealed. “Mandy, don’t do it,” the rest of the family may also be saying in the back of her head, I believe. But when Tina Turner plays, they believe it’s a sign that someone is communicating with them.
Will Paddy and Mandy be reuniting at this time?
It’s possible, as we all know.
